The pics of Che and Fidel feel a bit odd here in the former Evil Empire, but forget the politics - just enjoy a smashing good night in one of Riga's most fun-filled bars. An Old Riga nightlife veteran, Cuba Cafe never stops drawing a positive crowd who keep the energy going into the small hours. Fuel yourself with Corona and cocktails and join the youngsters boogieing to DJs every night of the week. Try this on for a pickup line: salud, por que la belleza sobra! (to your health, since you're already so beautiful!)
Drink: Hemingway Special (double Havana Club, Maraschino liqueur, lime juice, grapefruit juice)

Fun: There's a salsa party in Cuba or somewhere else in Riga almost every night.
